1. Any bid which is merely a nominal or fractional advance may 
be rejected by the auctioneer, if, in his judgment, such bid would be 
likely to affect the sale injuriously.

Payment of that part of the purchase money not made at the 
time of sale shall be made within ten days thereafter, in default of 
which the undersigned may either continue to hold the lots at the 
risk of the purchaser and take such action as may be necessary for 
the enforcement of the sale, or may at public or private sale, and 
without other than this notice, re-sell the lots for the benefit of such 
purchaser, and the deficiency (if any) arising from such re-sale shall

Delivery of any purchase will be made only at the American Art

Delivery may be made, at the discretion of the Association, of 
any purchase during the session of the sale at which it was sold. 

5. Shipping, boxing or wrapping of purchases is a business in 
which the Association is in no wise engaged, and will not be performed 
by the Association for purchasers. The Association will, however,

the parties engaged for such service. 

6. Storage of any purchase shall be at the sole risk of the pur-

for and delivering such purchase, it will not hold itself responsible if 
such purchase be lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed. 

Storage charges will be made upon all purchases not removed 
within ten days from the date of the sale thereof. 

7. Guarantee is not made either by the owner or the Association

error of cataloguing, or any imperfection not noted. Every lot is 
on public exhibition one or more days prior to its sale, after which 
it is sold "as is" and without recourse. 

The Association exercises great care to catalogue every lot cor- 
rectly, and will give consideration to the opinion of any trustworthy 
expert to the effect that any lot has been incorrectly catalogued, and, 
in its judgment, may either sell the lot as catalogued or make mention 
of the opinion of such expert, who thereby would become responsible 
for such damage as might result were his opinion without proper 
foundation.

fully attended to without charge or commission. Any purchase so

chaser who has not, through himself or his agent, been present at 
the exhibition or sale, will permit such lot to be returned within ten 
days from the date of sale, and the purchase money will be returned, if 
the lot in any material manner differs from its catalogue description. 

Orders for execution by the Association should be written and 
given with such plainness as to leave no room for misunderstanding.

should be stated to be so much for the lot, and when the lot consists 
of one or more volumes of books or objects of art, the bid per volume 
or piece should also be stated. If the one transmitting the order is

French: Contemporary 

No. \—THE BUGLER 

Height, sy^ inches; xoidth, 61/^ inches 

In a flat field where the grass is yellowish-green, bounded by 
a wooded hill blue in the distance, a helmeted cuirassier, his 
armor shining, and wearing red trousers and boots, mounted 
on a gray charger is sounding a call or orders at the instance 
of an officer on foot. Bugler and horse are back to the spec-

Frkxch: 1851—1913 



No. 2— ON THE BEACH 



Height, 8 inches; width, S^/o inches 

On a broad flat sandy beach yellow in the sunli<>ht, bordered 
in the distance by a blue sea, a heavy fishing boat with two

Heiglif, 6I/2 inches; length, 9 inches 

A BKOAi) earth road in the country leads straight away in the 
foreground, and tiu-ning, loses itself amongst low, rolling 
green hills that extend to the horizon. Entering the view it is 
yellow in warm sunshine, and it vanishes in the shadows of 
dark gray clouds, which mottle the face of the landscape. Two 
women in red, green, yellow and white are strolling in the 
road. 

Signed on the hack, Michel, 1839. 



MATTHEW MAKIS 

Dutch: 1835— 

No. 4— AFTER THE CHRISTENING 

Height, Bi/o indies; tvidth, 5Yj inches 

A SMALL boy in pious attitude, with prayer or song book held 
before his breast, walks slowly toward the left, followed by a 
dignified man in dark breeches and red coat, who is accom- 
panied by a matronly woman, long folds of soft white drooping 
over her arm. Behind them, a step higher, come another sober 
man and woman, emerging from a brown-walled building. 

Signed at the lower right, M. M., '68. 




RALPH ALBERT BLAKELOCK, N.A. 

American : 1847 — 

No. 5— AN INDIAN MADONNA 



Height, 8 inches; width, 6 inches 

A YOUNG Indian motlier is seated on a blanket on the grass, 
facing the observer. One knee is raised, the other rests flat on 
the ground, with foot folded inward. She wears a loose, light 
yellow gown, a jeweled necklace and a bracelet, and is bare- 
footed. Close at her side is a little papoose, swathed tight in 
yellow and Indian red, and seemingly asleep standing, the 
mother's encircling arm all-sufficient support. 

Signed at the lower left, R. A. Blakelock. 



AUGUSTIN THEODULE RIBOT 

French : 1823—1891 

No. Q—THE COOK 

Height, 11 inches; width, 8I4 inches 

Harmony softly melodious — a motive in rich browns, olive and 
gray, and the tones of sun-warmed flesh. The background is 
dark brown, varying in intensity, the whole surroundings are 
dark, with a subdued light from above on the right falling upon 
the gray-white cap and coat of a hardy peasant who is seated 
beside a dark brown basket of green vegetables. 

Signed at the lower right, T. Ribot, 1853. 

Purchased from the late Daniel Cottier. 



ANTOINE VOLLON

as a young man. He is in the picturesque costume of the age, 
all dark, and wears a large, full, dark velvet cap, below which 
his dark reddish-brown hair falls to his shoulders. The sub- 
ject is seen in a screened light, as though through a haze or in 
dusky precincts. 

Signed at the lower left, A. Vollon. 

Purchased from Messrs. Cottier (§• Co. 




WILLIAM GEDNEY BUNCE, N.A 



American: 1840- 



No. S— APPLES 



Height, 10 inches; length, 14^2 iitches 



Lying in a small, gray-white china dish are a large ripe golden- 
yellow apple with a soft bloom on its delicate skin, and the half 
of a rosy apple, its flesh exposed even to the seeds of the split 
core. Back of the dish, on the yellowish-mahogany table, is a 
large apple, red and light green ; glossy green grapes are scat- 
tered on tlie table beside it ; and the background is a rich, dark 
green, modified by reflections from the table — the whole in 
"juicy" color. 

Purchased from Messrs. Cottier ($- Co. 




ALBERT PINKHAM liYDEK, N.A. 

American: 184<7 — 

No. 9~THE BARNYARD 



Height, 111/4 inches; length, 12 inches 

Almost in the values of rich enamels is the opulent coloring 
which the artist has given to this painting of a homely farm- 
yard scene. A rare mahogany appears the ripe luxuriant 
thatch in the steep roof of the chimnejxd white-walled build- 
ing on the left, which connects with the brown roof of an open 
shed across the background in which olive notes mingle with 
the brown. On the right a line of thick, low-branching pojjlars 
closes in the barnyard, their dense, dark-green foliage in shadow 
casting a dark shadow of its outline on the yellow straw-colored 
ground. Out in the bright sunlight, on the ground, a game 
rooster looks up toward a heasy bay horse standing patiently, 
unattended, between the shafts of a two-wheeled cart piled 
high with gray-green hay. 

Purchased from the late Daniel Cottier. 



FRIEDRICH BOSER 

German: 1811—1881 

No. 10— DEVOUTNESS 

Height, 15 inches; width, 10 inches 

Before a quiet gray architectural background — a church wall 
— a pious young woman in black peasant dress, her head 
wrapped in a black scarf which reveals the brown hair over lier 
broad forehead, is standing with a closed Bible held in her 
clasped hands. She is seen at three-quarter length, her figure 
to the right, and fair face bent to the left, where a strong light 
illumines it. 

Signed at the lower left, F. Boser, 1879. 



ALEXANDER H. WYANT, N.A. 

American: 183G— 1892 

No. U— LANDSCAPE 

(Water Color) 

Height, 14< inches; width, 10 inches 

In a bowl amongst broad, high hills — perhaps well up in the 
mountains — a blue lake comes into view on the left, project- 
ing well into the picture. On its sloping bank in the fore- 
ground, autumn-colored herbage and one or two detached slen- 
der trees, in a bright liglit, lead to dense woods relatively in 
shadow, which continue around the lake shore. The sky is filled 
with light clouds and shows only a patch of blue. 

Signed at the lower right, A. H. Wyant. 




ALFRED STEVENS 

Belgian: 1828—1906 

No. 12— GIRL IN WHITE 

Height, 13 inches; width, 91/) inches 

A YOUNG woman in a diaphanous white gown with flowing 
skirts is seated facing tlie spectator on a sofa covered with 
glowing crimson drapery. Her hair, shghtly disheveled, hangs 
in loose curls. She has turned her head toward her right, 
whence comes a strong light striking full upon that side of 
her face and causing the left side to appear in transparent 
shadow. 

Signed at the upper right, AS, in monogram. 




G. BONNEMAISON 

French : Nineteenth Century 



No. IS— THE FOOL 



Height, 14 inches; width, lO^/o inches 



Rugged in age a gray-truiiked tree, with branches somewhat 
gnarled, seems to stand guard over a small spring-pool in a 
meadow, the pool lying in front of it with dark and placid sur- 
face lighted by reflections from a M^hite sky. Wending her way 
leisurely over the soft grasses and weeds a peasant woman 
approaches from the right, wearing a white cap, gray jacket 
and dark skirt, and carrying a burden in her blue aj^ron. Across 
the background are lesser trees but of dense deep-green foliage. 

Signed at the lower right, G. Bonnemaison. 

Purchased from the late Daniel Cottier. 




LOUIS METTLING 

German: 1847—1904 

No. 14— RELICS OF THE PAST 

Height, 13 inches; width, 9 inches 

A RAW-BONED, bluc-cyed youth, seated on a low cask and ob- 
served in a half-light, is indulging in martial dreams. He has 
clad himself in a soldier's brass-buttoned great-coat and cam- 
paign hat, shoes that are too big for him, puttees or leggings 
which sag, and he holds under one arm a folded red blanket. 
Between spread knees his lankj'^ hands close upon the scabbard 
of a long sword whose hilt is high as his shoulder. 

Signed at the lower left, Mettling. 
Purchased from the late Daniel Cottier. 




JOHANNES BOSBOOM 

Dutch: 1817—1892 

No. 15— INTERIOR OF CHURCH AT ALKMAAR 



Height, 121'2 inches; width, 10 inches 

In the interior of the "Groote Kerk," at Alkniaar, the artist 
has noted a charm of subtle values, a pleasing study of lights 
and shade, of gray tones and somber accents, relieved by touches 
of subdued but rich color. In the foreground, beneath impos- 
ing blunt-pointed groined arches upheld by round pillars on 
square bases, the whole in clear, transparent shadow, a man, 
woman and child are standing in a group. 

Signed at the lower left, J. Bosboom. 

Purchased from the late Daniel Cottier. 




JACOB MAKIS 

Dutch: 1838—1899 

No. IQ—THE SIESTA 

Height, 8^ inches; length, 131/4 inches 

(In emulation of Delacroix.) A glowing essay in rich, melli- 
fluous color, picturing a period of restful indulgence in a Moor- 
ish lady's day. The dark-haired beauty, good to look upon, 
reclines on her left elbow, facing the spectator, figure partly 
erect and knees drawn to right angles along the couch — which 
is formed of a mass of rugs upon the floor — in an Oriental 
luxuriance of cushions and chromatic splendor. The rich drap- 
ery of her apparel, rose-pink and red, cream, green and white, 
flows gracefully and loose, without submerging the suggestions 
of the figure. Her dreamy face is in transparent shadow. A 
peacock-feather fan is at one side and a gay-plumed bird of 
tropical lands is perched above her. 

Signed at the lower left, J. Maris, fc, 1871. 

Purchased from the late Daniel Cottier. 




THOMAS COUTURE 

French: 1815—1879 

No. ^7— FAUST AND MEPHISTOFHELES 



Height, 15 inches; -width, 101/. inches 

Faust in feminine model is seated in languid attitude on the 
left, sword between knees and left arm carelessly resting on 
the coping of a terrace, on a ledge of Avhich he is sitting. He is 
in red tights, with upper body clothed in dark stuffs, and wears 
a red cap with plumes. At his side JNIephistopheles, standing, 
clad in red with brown tights, is singing, accompanying him- 
self on the guitar, and seen to the right with head thrown back. 

Signed at the lower left, T. C. 

Purchased from the late Daniel Cottier. 




FERDINAND VICTOK LEON KOYBET 

French: 1840— 

No. IH— ABDUCTION OF REBECCA 



Height, VI inches; lenyih, 14 inches 

Two dark-skinned turbaned horsemen are on an eminence in 
the foreground, their mounts facing to the right. The nearer 
rider, in red, a knife in his belt and scimitar in hand, sits a 
black charger, his conu'ade beyond him a brown one. The 
second man is in darker garb, and grips to his saddle-bow the 
fainting Rebecca, her head fallen forward on the horse's neck. 
At her feet, between the two horses, is the prostrate body of 
her defender — who thought himself succoring Rowena — a 
broken lance at his side. About, on lower land, is the turmoil 
and confusion of battle, and at the left the round tower of 
Front-de-Bceuf's castle on fire. 

Signed at the lower left, F. Roybet. 
Purchased from the late Daniel Cottier. 



A. L. HERVIEK 

French: 1817—1879 

No. 19— FRENCH FAllMYAllD 

Heicflit, 19l/> inches; zvidtJi, 15 inches 

Ripe and mellow in their time-seasoned coloring are the tall 
plaster walls of old rookeries of houses on the outskirts of a 
French town. Gray their tone, sohered with brown, a touch of 
yellow and faded red in the roofs, which take many lines. Un- 
der the shelter of a porch roof a woman is washing clothes in 
a wall basin at the top of a few stone steps, and in another 
doorway a child is sitting. Close by in the happy-go-lucky 
yard chickens are feeding, gathered about a woman who looks 
idly at them. 

Signed at the lower right, Hervier.

No. 20'-RETURNING FROM THE FIELDS 

HeigJit, 11 inches; length, li inches 

On the right the lower flank of a massive hill or mountain is 
brilliant with color, the huge mass rising out of view and its 
lower reaches extending well into the picture and joining 
green rolling foothills on the left. In the foreground in bright 
sunshine two young light-haired women in white, red, yellow 
and green are walking, wearily, around the foot of the hill, 
and back of them, seen under the branches of a tree, trudge two 
more figures, their costumes red and blue. 

Purchased from the late Daniel Cottier. 




ARTHUR B. DA VIES 

American: 1862 — 

No. 21— SISTERS 

Height, 16 inches; width, 11 inches 

A SKETCH or study of rich tonal effects in subjects, background 
and light, the heads of the sitters carried out, their gowns left 
as color masses though sufficiently indicated. A tall young 
woman, fair, with golden hair and warm lips, is seen at half 
length, standing, her head inclined toward her right shoulder 
and her face turned tln-ee-quarters to the front. A small girl 
with long reddish-brown hair, seen head and shoulders, is stand- 
ing in front of her. 

Signed at the lower right, A. B. Davies. 




JOHN HENKY TWACHTMAN 

American: 1853—1902 

No. 22 WINTER LANDSCAPE 



Height, 13 inches; length, 21 inches 

Snow lies deep over fields, meadows, dunes, at the borders of 
a salt-water bay. The soft gray-white covering has in large 
part a rolling surface of small hollows and low mounds, fol- 
lowing the contour of the uneven land, a broad stretch in the 
foreground somewhat sheltered exhibiting a smooth spread, 
unbroken save for a patch of brown weed and a short scraggly 
tree, to whose branches cling a few brown-red leaves. Near 
it a solitarj^ figure in red and blue is making slow way, plod- 
ding through the snow toward a group of buildings in a clump 
of trees on higher land ahead. At different places in the 
meadows the tops of rail fences and haystacks appear, and in 
the distance at the shore line or in inlets the masts of sailboats. 
The sky, cold and foreboding, is filled with clouds. 

Signed at the lower left, J. H. Twachtmax, New York, 1879. 

Purchased from the artist. 




KOBERT SWAIN GIFFOKD, N.A. 

Ameuican: 18^0—1905 

No. 2^— LANDSCAPE NEAR NONQUITT 



Height, 10 inches; length, !33 inches 

The fall of the year has come, and herbage and beach bushes 
have taken on the sere and yellow along wide-stretching 
marshes bordering the sea or an arm thereof, which lies, a faint 
blue streak, against a low horizon. The sky above is screened 
by massing clouds, white near the horizon and dark, dull, cold 
gray overhead. Along the meadows, which are still green in 
patches, goes a bird hunter in a red jacket, his gun held ready, 
and gulls or other birds are in flight against the sk}'. At 
the right is a hayrick. 

Signed at the lurver left, R. Swain Gifford, '76-7. 

Purchased from the artist. 



IIENKY MUHKMAN 

Ameuic'ax- 1854< — 

No. 'U— STILL LIFE—F *UIT 

Height, 16 inches; lengih, 21 inches 

Against a background of dusk — the shadowed recesses of a 
room — a salver of cheer lying on a table catches restricted rays 
of light. The salver is of gray metal, resting on a brownish 
surface, and it holds a grayish dish, whiten' ig' in the high 
lights, which contains fruit-cake, nuts, and apples of deep, rich 
red, and beside the dish is a ready knife. Near it is a glass, its 
li(iuid contents colorless but supporting a lip-moistening slice 
of lemon. 

Signed at the lower left, H. jMuhrman, 1880. 

Purchased from the late Daniel Cottier. 








WILL H. LOW, N.A. 



American: 1853- 



No. 25— ON THE SEINE 



Height , 15 inches; length, 2iiY2 incites 



Under a soft glow of yellowisli light, sunshine subdued by all- 
pervasive vaporous clouds, a bend in the river is disclosed, its 
farther bank a lightly wooded hillside sloj^ing in the direction 
of the distance to a flat shore where poplars rise above the 
masses of low trees and bushes. Of the nearer shore a corner 
only comes into view, in the right foreground, a green-edged 
sandy or clay bluff. In the stream and n H)red to this bank 
is a freight sloop of Rouen, stern on to the observer, while a 
smaller sloop bow on is alongside her and a tender of the 
larger boat swings inshore. 

Signed at the longer left. Will H. Low. 



SAMUEL COLMAN, N.A. 

American: 1832 — 

No. 2Q—A SUNNY AFTERNOON: 

PORT OF ALGIERS 

Height, 1-il/. inches; length, 27 inches 

A SCENE populous, brilliant and full of Oriental color is pre- 
sented, in bright sunshine under a pale greenish-blue sky 
lightly veiled and holding a few strata and detached puffs of 
tinted clouds. To right the blue and green rippling water 
of the harbor extends to distant brown and yellow mountains, 
seamed and broken, the farther ranges of the higher peaks 
vague in an opalescent haze. To left the terraced stone quays, 
a grayish sandy-red, mount from the foreground, where 
brightly clad natives smoke placidly on bundles of rugs, or 
gaze waterward, to a higher level where a throng of Algerians 
in equally gay apparel, some on camels, are relieved against a 
veritable mass of lateen-rigged shipping. 

Signed at the lower left, Samuel Colman, 1877. 




HENRY MUHRMAN 

American: 1854* — 



No. 21— THE HAY FIELD 



Height, 16 inches; length, 2.'3 inches 

Rolling lightly in its surface but maintaining a general level, 
a broad hilltop extends across a high horizon. To left a solitary 
oak tree sends its foliage above the picture's height, at the 
right two smaller trees come just within view, while along 
the crest occasional bushes project themselves against the sky. 
The forward slope of the hill, irregular, is given over to hay, 
growing in careless and luxuriant abundance, the field partly 
mown. Two laborers are busy with scythes, another is loading 
the hay upon his cart. The sky is graying in a brisk breeze and 
there is a hint of moisture in the air. Sketchily and freely 
painted as a quick record of impressions. 

Signed at the lorver left, H. INIuhrman, 1889. 
Purchased from the late Daniel Cottier. 




WILLIAM TKOST KICIIAKDS, N.A. 

Amkiucan: 18;33— 1905 

No. 2^— THE WISSAHICKON 



Height, '24>Yj inches; zcidth, 20 inches 

Standing just within the ed^e of a wood, on low ground, the 
spectator looks out across a brook to a grass-covered liill on the 
other side sloping toward the left, a few outlying trees seen on 
it in the distance. Within the wood the trees are turning from 
their green to autumn reds and browns, and brown and red 
bushes come up from the green grass among gray and spotted 
rocks. 

Signed at the loxccr right, Wm. T. Richards, 1877. 



C. F. HILL 

French : Nineteenth Century 

No. 'IQ— LANDSCAPE 

Height, 29 inches; zcidth, 21 inches 

On a gray day with plent}^ of light the bend of a river or the 
confluence of two streams in a wooded landscape is pictured 
with marked contrasts of light and shade. From the left the 
river, or an affluent of the larger stream, comes into view 
in the shadow of a middle distance wooded point, beyond which 
the waters broaden, turn from dark green to light gray, and 
in the distance exhibit a streak of white along a background of 
woods. The foreground shore is narrow, yellow appears 
amongst its grass, and slender birches from which a few lin- 
gering leaves flutter rise out of the picture. A warm note 
is supplied by a boulder which iron corrosion has turned a 
soft reddish-brown. 

Signed at the lower right, C. F. Hill. 

Purchased from Messrs. Cottier Sf Co.

HcKjht, '30'^ iiiclics; zc'ulth, U4 uirlics 

The three-quai-ter length portrait of a pretty little blonde 
Belgian girl, standing beside a potted rose-plant in bud, about 
to catch a tortoise-shell colored butterfly which has alighted on

Hciylit, 25 inches; IciHjth, JJ2 inches 

Under a sky whose blue lias largely taken on the greenish- 
tuniuoise hue, veiled by an attenuated cirrus curtain which 
assumes a denser consistency near the horizon, the artist has 
pictured an ancient tower wall of Cairo, partly in ruins. 
Within a darkened gate tiu'baned figures are silhouetted 
against the distant sky; over the arch and along neighboring 
ledges green plants flourish, natural gardens in the niches 
abandoned to time. The continuation of the wall toward the 
right looms red and glowing in the sunlight, which falls 
brightly also on the figure of and old man seated on the ground 
against the tower wall, looking up at his motionless enigmatical 
camel.

Height, 32 inches; width, 25 inches 

A BRIGHT morning has opened with a brisk and freshening 
breeze, white cumulus clouds are billowing large in a sky whose 
blue is seen well aloft, and the broad waters of the Scheldt 
are broken into dancing wavelets, whitened by the all-pervad- 
ing reflections from on high. Against the sky and water are 
spread the graceful Avings of early birds. On the river the 
sailors are astir betimes. Instead of majestic sail motionless 
in hazy calm, which Clays so placidly paints in many familiar 
compositions, here five of the heavy sloop-rigged working 
boats characteristic of the locality are standing away from a 
low shore, in the general direction of the spectator, in fresh 
and sparkling air. The most conspicuous, near at hand, her 
blunt bow painted yellow and lee-board hauled up, has a main- 
sail of soft smoky-gray, fore staysail stained brown, and carries 
a company clad in bright colors.

Distant mountains are faintly opalescent under a gauze-like

middle distance, with a hroad valley for its hither shore dotted 
with farms, huildings and woods. This, too, is partly screened 
by the haze, while in the foreground higher land of rolling

leading to a farmhouse all but hidden among the trees.

picture. Along the edge of the water are figures and a horse 
and cart. The artist found much to interest him about Hamp- 
stead Heath, where his home was. The whole picture here is 
a mass of green, subtly varied in tone, the larger part of the 
landscape a deep green, in shadow, while light strikes broadly 
upon the farther shore of the pond, and among the thick green 
trees of the high hill across the back appear red roofs and 
chimney-pots.

trunk in the center of the view supporting weighty branches 
whose thick foliage spreads over the picture and unites with 
that of a brother monarch at the right. On the green grass at 
the base of the tree a white-capped, bare-footed shepherdess, 
in gray waist and blue-green skirt, has seated herself, lean- 
ing against the trunk, and fallen asleep, her head resting 
against her hand. Her little flock of six gray sheep has come 
close to her, three of them lying down at her feet, one browsing 
while he lies. Here and there in the herbage appear the bright 
notes of poppies. The light is modulated pleasantly, and the 
qualities in the rugged, weathered trunk present their values 
in captivating effect. Beyond is a sunny field.

the (|ueen regent, in black — still a yoimg-looking woman — is 
seated in counsel with some of her advisers. She occupies a

More distant at her right, a white-ruffed member of the court,

while two warriors in helmet and corselet — perhaps de Guise 
and de Lorraine, the commanders of her Roman Catholic 
army — who are seated on wooden stools at the board, lean 
forward in keen attention — one in green, seen in profile, the

A SPACIOUS and characteristic American landscape opens to 
view, the land descending from the left and developing into 
rolling country in the right distance. There are light airy 
woods and rambling meadows, and the whole prospect is 
enveloped in a soft, subdued light and just slightly hazy at- 
mosphere. It is accomplished in a careful and sure study of 
tender greens, browns and grays, a successful adjustment of 
delicate values, with notable effect. The slope at the left sup- 
ports in the foreground a graceful birch tree, back of which 
slender trees and underbrush form a light screen against a 
green-blue sky veiled by gauzy white clouds. In a winding 
field road at the foot of the birch a farmer's boy in overalls is 
leading an awkward white calf, and back of them in a bend of 
the road the head of a brown cow coming around the hill is 
visible across the slope. On the right a few more slender trees, 
with feathery foliage, continue the light leafy screen across 
the middleground, before the yellowish-green meadows.

length, seated and facing the front, her head turned slightly to 
her left. Her Titian hair is loosely puffed and lightly hound

handsome arm and an expanse of delicately toned breast, lies 
in graceful folds and reflects a soft maze of fleeting color notes, 
delicate olive-yellow mingling with diaphanous gray- white. 
Her right elbow rests on a gray sculptured balustrade, the

dunes, and beyond their tops are suggestions of trees or tall 
chimneys. The sea is seen at the left, with vague sails in the 
distance, and along the shore line in the middle distance the 
waves are breaking into tossing white surf as they roll up the 
beach. Taking up a large part of the view, and most conspicu- 
ous, is the hull of one of the heavy, broad-bottomed Holland 
sailing boats, dismasted, lee-board hauled up against her side 
and two figures apparently at work aboard her. She affords 
the artist the best of his color scheme, in her weathered grays

It is just at the edge of tlie woods that the meeting takes place, 
a rencontre of a cavaher and his lady, both mounted, with three 
ladies out for a stroll, escorted by a gentleman in red coat and 
loose-legged boots, who though spurred is afoot to bear them 
company. The ladies walking are all in voluminous skirts and 
cloaks — red, yellow, dove-blue and white in their tints. Of the 
equestrians the man, on a red-brown horse, is clad in red and 
buff, his lady, on a cream-wliite mount, in a dark waist and long 
flowing deep-yellow riding-skirt.

Height, 11 inches; width, 8% inches 

Against a ground of olive and mahogany-brown a young girl 
is portrayed at three-quarter length, standing. Her figure, 
receding into the shadows, almost vanishes in or merges with 
the background. Her head is bent well forward, as she looks 
down to pet an affectionate collie. Light from the left illu- 
minates her plump pink cheeks and strikes upon her hand and 
the head of the dog.

Height,

On a bridge in the riglit foreground small figures are seen, and 
other ifigures appear at the left, along a bank of the canal which 
passes under it. In the canal are brown boats, and the sluggish 
water takes varied shadows and reflections. Its farther bank is 
a soft, moist green, paralleled by a narrow road or street which 
is lined with ])rown and white houses witli red and green roofs 
and lantern-like chimneys. Two tall windmills rise above the 
roof lines, and the antique-looking scene is bathed in a subdued, 
yellowish-hued glow — as of a light of vanished ages.

No. m—STUDY OF SUNLIT WOODS 



Height, 5-)4 inches; length, I'-Y-i inches 

The artist has presented a morccaii of delightful attraction; all 
the bigness of a large landscape contained within thumb-box 
dimensions. The spot chosen is the edge or entrance of an 
open wood of tall trees, bunched near the center of the compo- 
sition and well back, the groinid around them a fresh green 
field of irregular surface and varied herbage. A slant of bright 
light from a lowering sun back of the spectator at the left, 
strikes upon the foliage, which has begun to show autumn hues, 
and penetrates the woods a little way, accenting the trunks of 
trees within. A figure is suggested in a road between two 
hummocks in the middleground.

Height, Ql/^ inches; length, 13 inches 

A SKETCH freely done, and with the charm of freedom, and of 
the quick, spontaneous record of a motive offering itself with 
color grateful to the eye. Tall buildings of irregular outline and 
roof -levels project from the left, bej^ond a water foreground, 
massing themselves in tones of rich brown and soft gray against 
a cream-yellow sky of late afternoon. Details are eliminated as 
the observer looks against the light, the brown here and there 
lightens to pinkish hue, and shadows darken to a rich smoky 
black, while in the stream a black-liulled sailboat is lying.

Broad fields in a low, rolling country, all but treeless, spread 
to a far-off low horizon, their grassy green carpet cut with lines 
of brown, and the whole landscape darkening in the shades of 
evening. To left in the foreground a short and slender tree 
l)ending in a breeze, and some low bushes near it, carry on the 
green and brown notes. A rill threading the meadows is traced 
from a pool close in the central foreground, in which the white 
and rose of an after-sunset sky are reflected. The sky lights 
are fast being obliterated by swiftly moving clouds that sweep 
low over the land, threatening an evening shower.

sailing vessel observed close at hand is tossing in a tiu'bulent, 
choppy sea, all canvas up, several dark figures seen aboard her, 
one marked by a spot of red. The sails are creamy-white and 
a gray-brown, in a strange light that colors a stormy sky and 
overspreads the wind-blown waters. These are light where 
the wave crests break about the sailer, and dark in the dis-

TuRBANED worshippers of the solar deity are gathered for the 
matutinal devotions on the broad brow of a desert cliff. The 
stony ground is flat, broken with huge slabs of rock, which 
add their varied notes of gray to the yellow earth, while on the 
right a slightly higher patch of ground is carpeted with gray- 
green and yellow herbage. The throng of devotees includes 
men, women and children, kneeling, seated, standing, many 
with upraised arms and spread palms, greeting with adoration 
the bursting wonder of the god of day. Those in the far line 
on the brink are seen in silhouette, the groups at either end in 
shadow against still-dark clouds, while the figures at the center 
are blazoned against the glory of the sunburst that is turning 
the clouds to white and tinting them with rose. The apparel 
of the dutiful votaries is of rich stuffs and colors — red, green, 
blue, deep yellow, white, and warm brown. The figures for 
the most part are seen perforce in profile or in back view; a 
few face the direction of the spectator.

hilly country, the farther shore high land, the nearer almost 
flat. On the farther bank a house with Gothic dormers, near 
which stand tall, well-mounded haystacks, is built low on the 
hill side, and a boat is drawn up close at hand. On the hither 
shore two figures of farmer folk seated on the brown earth 
are intent on something at the water's edge. The rippling sur- 
face of the stream is a mass of modulated reflections, green, 
gray, blue, white, and in the foreground is a lock, or weir. 
Trees near at hand are brown, and distant ones are green, the 
sky is full of moving clouds, white and gray, fast-drifting,

Out in the open with Nature, at the sentimental liour, a

happy fete. They are painted in the glowing colors of jewels

crowned at the left by classic architectural ruins, the assemblage 
in the foreground lighted, the upper slopes of the hill with- 
drawing into mystic shadows under a darkening, softly-glow- 
ing sky. The atmospheric glow, of dull-golden tone, is intensi- 
fied in the broad foreground, enhancing while it softens the 
lustrous surfaces of the luxurious gowns. The festal company 
are disposed in various groups and attitudes, some reclining 
in sonmolent repose, the balmy fatigue of pleasure. Under the 
shelter of the ruins a man seated on the ground is playing the 
mandolin. A gallant and a fair-haired maid in the back- 
ground are trending toward the dusky shadows of the dark 
green upper slopes.

the greater part of the expanse. They are gray and mauve 
and white, and toward the right a light and sunny yellow well 
above the horizon, which is hidden by a nearby French farm- 
house group and tall, thick trees that stand around it. A soft 
light prevails over the earth. The buildings are gray with 
rich brown-thatch roofs, and they ramble on a bank of easy 
gradient — brown and green and marked by whitewashed 
stones — to a gray river of rapid current which bends sharply 
about the point on which the houses stand. The stream is 
broken in its hurry into wave-like rapids, the curling tips 
whitened by light reflected from the sky, and its farther shore 
is lined with dark woods, a few of the tree tops only catching 
glints of light.

"How beautiful this night! tlie bahiiiest sigh

Were discord to the speaking quietude." 

And with what power Rousseau under the spell of the beauty 
expresses the subtlety and depth of it, the mystic charm, still 
mysterious in familiarity, the vague and pregnant suggestion 
in the ambient air, the allure of half-lights and leafy retreats 
under the soft lunar radiance, diffused over a rural landscape 
of woods and water, green grass and half-seen plants, and 
shadowy dwellings. To left the forms of houses under the 
shelter of trees outline themselves dimly, gables and chim- 
neys seen against clouds which are themselves comparatively 
dark. The branches of the trees, spreading overhead, mingle 
with those of other trees on the right, and under the sylvan arch 
the moon is revealed, emerging from clouds with luminous 
edges, and on earth burnishing the mirror of a foreground 
stream. Toward the right in the middle distance is a well, and 
a country maid is on her way from it in the direction of the

A STURDY gray horse of the Percheron breed is standing across 
the picture, headed to tlie left, in the open air and sunshine 
before the soft commingled greens of a wood's edge, at his feet 
a light cknnp of vagrant wildflowers. The sunlight brightens 
his broad white back and slants across his stocky shoulder, 
throwing his nearer side into light transparent shadow and 
emphasizing the contrast with his dappled rump and brown- 
touched legs. His tail, rather full, reaches scarcely to his knees.

In the corner is a rain barrel. The stable is a yellowish white, 
with hints of rose, and its uneven roof of thatch or ancient tile 
is brown and black and gray and green and red, weathered 
and "barnacled," and in the harmony of time softened in tone 
withal. The rudely built heavy wooden door is open, and in 
the shadows within a pair of expressive long ears are conspicu-

A CANVAS of quiet tones and restful qualities, and a certain re- 
strained artistic suggestion even apart from the technical aroma 
of the jjrecincts. The studio is large and old-fashioned, and the 
spectator is looking at a corner of it, where light enters from 
the left through a tall window, over canvases on their stretch- 
ers standing on the floor within the deep embrasure. The walls 
are gray, with a flush of yellow above a yellow-brown or dark 
sandy-yellow floor ; the gray continues in the ceiling, and the re- 
cesses are dark, with a mahogany note among the shadows. 
On the right an aged artist is at work upon a huge ambitious 
canvas, a figure composition within a deep frame. He is paint- 
ing seated in a low wooden chair with carved back, and is well 
muffled in a great-coat or ample dressing gown whose ripe ma- 
turity is revealed in soft notes by a slant of the light across his 
shoulders. His hair and beard are gray and he wears an old- 
red cap.

A CANVAS of rich, low-toned greens at first concealing rather 
than revealing a picturesque landscape nascent in their dark 
fecund seclusion. As it emerges to the studious sympathetic 
eye, a placid stream appears, tracing its courses between a por- 
tentous wooded bluff on one hand and a low bank and rounded 
hill on the other. In a shallow pool in the sliadows at the base 
of the cliff a solitary figure is detected, standing in the water, 
fishing. Over the rounding hilltop, beyond a brown screen of 
sparse leafage, the turquoise sky is aglow with fading sunset 
light, turning white cirrus cloud-patches to golden yellow — 
stray reflections from tliem gilding the swamp-green pool near 
the figure of the lone fisher. At the foot of a green slope of 
tlie bluff in the left foregroimd, rusty, gray and moss-grown 
boulders add their color notes at the border of the stream.

smoking a short clay pipe, his cap on. He is in profile. He 
wears coarse brown trousers and a dark blue coat. Sitting on 
the floor is a little girl, in the traditional Dutch cap and short-

In the stern surroundings of the stone quarry there is going 
on the work of the day; the artist views it as a demonstration 
of the might of nmscle, the strain of labor, the eeaseless, un- 
complaining grind of those M^ho toil with the strength of the 
flesh, deadened to keener sensibilities. The quarriers are two, 
men of swarthy skin, stripped to the waist, one with reddish 
hair who wears brown trousers and the other with dark brown 
hair, his trousers a strong full blue-green, a patch of white roll- 
ing over at the waist. Working as conn-ades the men form a 
group in deep rich tones of mahogany and the dark green, 
relieved against the great gray mass of the stone cliff rising 
behind them beyond view, and the knot and play of their tense 
muscles is steadfastly proved in the modeling. The light is 
subdued. The men are prying up a huge piece of rock by 
means of a long, heavy wooden post, one bearing down on it 
with all his weight and strength, one leg thrown over it and the 
light playing upon his })ared back ; his fellow partly in shadow 
below him, foot ])raced against a boulder, powerful body ex- 
tended, pulling downward on the bar Avith desperate might.

Height, 31 inches; width, 25 inches 

She stands, this girl of Capri, tall and slender, leaning grace- 
fully upon a tree of peculiar shape — a slight trunk, which rises 
with an inclination to the height of her elhow and then bends 
in compound curves leftward and upward in such lines as seem 
formed to frame and support her sujjple back. She leans 
against it, back three-quarters to the observer, her right elbow 
drooping over the first bend, and her left arm extended along 
the trunk at the height of her shoulder, as the tree continues 
its wandering way upward. The tree is gray and all but leaf- 
less; one sees only the gray rambling trunk, and a stunted 
shoot issuing from near its base, bearing a bunch of bluish- 
green leaves. These are relieved against the long mauve skirt 
of the maid, who wears a blue laced bodice over a white under- 
waist whose low neck and short sleeves reveal her clear dark 
skin. Her face is seen in profile to the right, light from above 
glinting upon her dark hair. The grass about her is a soft, 
delicate, yellowish-green, and runs up to a gray stone fence. 
Beyond the fence the background is a screen of foliage — gray- 
green or deep with shadows — against a white sky, with a 
glimpse of blue water caught between the lower tree trunks.

man their heavy boats, hauled up on the yellow sands of a cove, 
and be ready to put out when the tide comes in. The brown 
and yellow sands, still sheltering pools of other tides, form the 
foreground across which one looks to an undulant turquoise 
sea emerging from a milky Channel haze. The sky is filled 
with dissolving masses of opalescent cloud, through which the 
sun struggles, burnishing the miniature wavelets at the shore 
line with brilliant white. To left a man in a red jacket sits 
patiently in his single-masted boat on the sands. To right a 
man in mahogany-colored coat and another in a blue blouse

before the eye leaving only indefinite distance sliorn of detail 
to be imagined beyond it, under a sky shrouded with light 
clouds which reflect a soft, warm glow. The bank of the ridge 
is green with grass, and brown spears of weeds or bushes shoot- 
ing above its to}) silhouette themselves against the clouds. At 
its base, several feet below, is a brown plowed field, its edge 
the foreground of the picture. Here the tiller of the soil, work- 
ing toward the left, has halted his team, near the center of the 
composition, and struggles to adjust one of the heavy, crude 
instruments of Holland agriculture, his stocky horses stolid 
and motionless, his own stodgy figure a picture of quiet, 
plodding determination. The horses are a black one and a 
white one. The peasant wears a green-blue blouse, brown

The original "Romany Girl" of this painter. So much has 
been written of her, so familiar have her features become, so 
much just praise has voiced tlie admiration the painting has 
elicited, that it might be difficult, were it needful, to offer 
expression anew of thoughts which the eloquent canvas con-

Enough that she comes, the dignified, standing figure seen at 
three-quarters length, in the somber, appropriate surroundings 
of forest, with charm undiminished, bloom unfading, luster of 
hazel ej'es undimmed — prescient, questioning wisdom of the 
ages and the hour in her face, a symphony of golden-brown

In meadows of lusli grass — a fresh, tender green of spring-

patiently lahorious cows, who manifest a harmless and self- 
contained bovine resentment at the prying intrusion of the 
spectator upon a natural incident of the day. A red cow stand- 
ing in the water faces the observer, with lowered head, having 
drunk or about to drink, her shadow coloring the water before 
her, which is already tinged with the green and white reflec- 
tions of meadow-grass and sky. Approaching her from the 
left and seen in profile, a white cow with black patches about 
the head has also entered the water, and looks sidewise at the 
intruder before proceeding to the thoughtful deliberation of 
a draft. A tall spear of reed rises to the height of her back, 
where the light glistens on her coat, and behind her the third 
cow is seen, a black and white one. Low dunes appear in the 
distance, and the low-lying country reaches far away.

thinning out at the right where underneath the lessening leaf-

green and white under a blue sky massed with white summer 
clouds. The wood and meadows are marked off by a country 
fence of board-pickets, gray, green or brown as weather has 
left them, traversing the picture in the middleground with an 
edging of fresh green grass at its base. In front of it, in an 
earth road which is the foreground, two cows are moving slowly 
toward the left, in the care of a plump Dutch milkmaid. A 
black and white cow on the inner side lowers her head towai-d 
the grass, and the nearer one, white with red shoulders and 
neck, looks with a feeling of personal concern in the same direc-

heavy gray sabots, and carries a switch. The picture might be
